I've mentioned here that I've been talking to a local cabinet builder, wanted to get something that hit harder and was more efficient than my EA VL110s. I spent the afternoon at Atomic Music and while there decided to check out a custom 1-12 wedge cab built by Joey Nahas. Joey built an amazing 18/2-10/horn cab that was probably the best sounding, loudest single cab I've ever heard. One caveat: it was 175 lbs. Back to the 1-12...it's loaded with a 400w Eminence driver, an unknown to me crossover, Eden horn, horn level control, speakon and 1/4" jacks. Rear ported. Basically similar dimensions to the Hartke kickbacks. Sounded very nice by itself so I got the idea to try pairing it with some other speakers. I think I've found a very special combination. I stacked it with one of the really small BagEnd 15 cabs, also rear ported. The sound coming from this pair was pretty hard to believe. The lows were huge but very controllable, the B string slammed and moved lots of air. Chest-hitting lows. Excellent mids. Airy highs. A perfect match. Played through a Peavey Firebass head at less than half volume it had room-filling sound, lots of bite and very good tone. My friend and I tried it with multiple basses and amps, a/b'd it back and forth with various cabs and it just plain sounded great. I bought the pair. Got them home this evening, waited a while and finally hooked them up to a/b them with my EA rig. The difference in volume is amazing. I played my MTD 635 through it and the pair are very articulate and punchy. I still love the EA sound but this stack, which is slightly taller than the EA, at less than half volume on my AMP BH-420 amp was so loud, clean and clear... I unplugged everything and came upstairs to sit down I'll a/b it again under the harsh light of day but I think I may have stumbled onto something here. BTW the Nahas was new, the BagEnd used, total for both, including tax... $500.
